Governor condemns Minnesota mosque bombing

Posted: Updated:

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) - Gov. Mark Dayton has condemned the bombing of a suburban Minneapolis mosque as "so wretched" and "not Minnesota."

Dayton and Lt. Gov. Tina Smith visited the Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington on Sunday morning, a day after an explosive device shattered windows and damaged an office at the mosque.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports Dayton and Smith joined public officials and mosque leaders for a meeting inside the building.

No one was hurt in the Saturday morning blast.

The FBI is seeking suspects and trying to determine whether the incident was a hate crime.
